- {b} DIO = Did It Ourselves. Sort of like DIY but not--It was a colab project between myself and the Mrs.

Like any wedding comes the crazy stress of planning, getting the word out, and getting closer to that epic 'I want to jab you in the face repeatedly ' battle between you and your spouse. I would also like to say that my wife and I have been happily married for 1 year and 5 months and our faces look amazing! Being the creative pair that we are our wedding had to show that side of us...starting with the logo and Save The Date.

And if you were wondering, the answer is yes...ibcreative does save the dates, wedding invitations, and programs ;)

The logo...I'm pretty sure I made 8 logos before we picked 'the one'. In picking 'the one' I realized that most of the designs that didn't make it wasn't that simple yet elegant look that we wanted. You know what they say...8th times a charm. They say that right?

The Save the Date. We had a dope session with our good friend Shawn Walker (check him out on facebook @ www.facebook.com/shawnwalkerphotography)! We took the pictures in Downtown Tampa...it was kinda weird being in front of the camera and not behind lol!

The Design. It was basically a mailout, so what better way to make it a postcard. We initially wanted it printed on recycled paper but the glossy club flyer type would probably be able to withstand the travel before it gets to the invitees mailbox.

 

The Invitations & Packaging. We wanted to keep the whole DIO feel so what better way to do so by keeping the brand up with our invitations. I designed a little booklet complete with a quote from the both of us, a verse, directions, and our wedding website. It was alotta fun putting it together, especially our self portraits. And need I mention our 1am run to the local 24 hr FedEx Kinkos.

 

What's that CD you say? That is a DVD of us giving the announcement of our wedding date and the trailer to "Our Love Story". The video was shot by my good friend and roommate at the time Daniel Bryant. Check it out:

And thats what happens when 2 creative people get together. Hey and there is 'ib' in ibcreative. Eh Eh!!
